Welcome to Northern House School Website


I am pleased to announce the permanent appointment of Mrs Jones as Headteacher at Northern House School (Oxford) and Mr Willis as Deputy Headteacher.

The pupils are very lucky to have such talented and committed people to lead the team and I am sure the school will go from strength to strength.

Their first day in post with pupils present was marked by a resplendent display of swanky new jumpers – and don’t the children look smart!

Here’s wishing everyone happy times and good learning experiences in this new academic year.
